Beste | 1163 comments I did yesterday. I don't want to call the book weird but its definitely unique.


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments That's with all Murakami's books ;) You'll love it or you hate it. He has something with cats and magic - realism.


Beste | 1163 comments I'm having hard time correlating Kafka's running and Nakata's chats with cats :)


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments On which page are you? I'm joining tommorow - evening the latest.


Beste | 1163 comments Around 60%.
I've to say its like reading Mieville :)

Same here.


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments Never read a Mieville, so I can't compare, but Murakami is why I began to love Japanese literature.

I’m about 60% in and whenever I think we’ve reached the peak of it all...this story just gets weirder. I’m enjoying it but I have no idea where it’s going lol


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments I had that with The Strange Library. That was just very weird, but still enjoyable. I'm still reading it.
